This is Anglachel. I’m returning to blogging after a two-year hiatus. For a brief rundown on what I’ve been up to in the intervening months, read the About page.
This may fizzle out after a few posts, or it may go on for a while. Consider yourself warned.
Back when I was blogging, towards the last year or two of engagement, I found myself posting about food politics quite a bit. If you read the About page, you’ll see that my interest in food politics has become bigger and more personal.
The same issues and themes that have driven my more-overtly political writings are going to be present in this new blog – class, economics, loss of privacy, social privilege, the way in which the most vocal elements of the so-called Left in this country are just as fundamentalist, closed-minded, superstitious and authoritarian as the rabble-rousers of the Right – but the focus will be obesity and all the mess that has and continues to attach itself to that term.
I’ll probably bring over some of the original material from the older blog as appropriate.
We’ll see where it all goes.
